TO: ALL PARISH PRIESTS, CHAPLAINS, RECTORS OF SHRINES, COORDINATORS OF THE PARISH BIBLICAL APOSTOLATE
RE: GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF BIBLICAL APOSTOLATE COORDINATORS
Dear Monsignori and Fathers,
Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings of Peace!
In line with the New Evangelization, preparing for the 500th anniversary of the arrival of the Gospel in the Philippines, the Episcopal Commission on the Biblical Apostolate during the National Biblical Workshop, discerned the need to intensify its efforts to help return the Bible to its place at the center of each Catholic family and home. On a structural level, the desire is to complete the biblical apostolate working staff by year 2020 to help the BA continue providing formation to the faithful.
To continue with its effort to meet this organizational requirement in our diocese and launch the Diocesan Biblical Apostolate as a fully-functioning lead biblical animator in our diocese in every parish, the Diocese of Parañaque Biblical Apostolate (DOPBA) will hold its 3rd General Assembly and Planning for 2019 on November 30, Friday, and December 1, 2018, Saturday, at the BLD Covenant House and Retreat Center in Dasmariñas, Cavite.
In line with this, we request all parish coordinators (2 per parish) to be present at the said event. A minimal share of Php 700.00 will be asked per coordinator to cover half of the cost of the food and accommodations for the said activity, with the other half covered by the Diocesan Biblical Apostolate. Kindly confirm your BA Coordinators’ attendance not later than October 15, 2018 by texting the undersigned at 09399275619 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
REV. FR. EDGAR JOSEPH MIRANDA
Diocesan Biblical Apostolate
